Brussels / PNN / 

A statement issued by the High Representative of the European Union, Josep Borrell, affirmed that EU countries support the three-phase roadmap proposed by U.S. President Joe Biden, aimed at establishing a permanent ceasefire, releasing prisoners, and increasing aid to Gaza.

The statement, which PNN received a copy of, expressed the EU's full support for the comprehensive roadmap presented by President Biden, which would lead to a lasting ceasefire in Gaza, the release of all hostages, and an increase in humanitarian assistance to Gaza.

The European Union commended the determined efforts by the United States, Egypt, and Qatar in facilitating negotiations to end the war between Israel and Hamas, while ensuring the security of Israel, to which the EU remains fully committed.

The statement read: "Too many civilian lives have been lost. An enduring ceasefire is urgently needed to ensure the protection of civilians, the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages whose safety and well-being are of concern, and to increase the flow of much-needed humanitarian relief to Gaza in view of the deepening humanitarian crisis. Peace and stability in the Middle East are in the interest of both peoples, the region as a whole, and globally."

The EU statement urged both parties to accept and implement the three-phase proposal and reiterated its readiness to contribute to reviving a political process for a lasting and sustainable peace, based on the two-state solution, and to support a coordinated international effort to rebuild Gaza.
